Worst golf expierence ever.

Let me start by saying that I have never left a bad review for anything ever. I traveled to the Pocono's from the Philadelphia area to play with some old friends. We made a 12:30 tee time this past Saturday. When we went to check in we were informed by the attendant that our time was bumped to 1 o'clock. We didn't tee off until 1:30 because they said that they were backed up due to it being cart path only because of wet conditions. Ok, that's understandable. When we approached the 1st tee box at 1:30 we were behind another foursome and an outing of about 20 woman. The round took 5 hours and 45 minutes! Horrible! When I was pulling out of the lot I overheard another customer complaining to one of the staff. instead of the staff member just apologizing and possibly offering some sort of rain check he had the guts to say that they were right on time. And preceded to defend the idea that a 5 hour 45 minute round was what should be expected. All he had to do was apoligize. From the first hole on we would arrive at the next hole to find 2 groups waiting to tee off. It was clear that they overbooked the course based on the conditions, to try and make as much money as they could. Very, very, bad!

Great course, not the best proshop

Great layout in flawless condition. Green was lightening fast and good shape. Pin placement was US open Sunday.

Starter and cart crew are super friendly but pros hop guy was worst ever.

Somehow I had a career round (68) so I guess if I wrote a bad review I would be an idiot. The fairways were fairly generous and in good condition. Greens were smooth and true(6 birdies). Every hole was its own. Spectacular layout. Needed to work the ball both ways. Played 6300 yds. Plenty for over 50 crowd. Elevation changes challaging. Rangefinder with slope would have been helpful.

Amazing Conditions

Played the course on a Saturday and conditions, pace and overall experience were amazing!!

Staff was super friendly and very informative. Felt like a member from the time I arrived until the moment I left.

Clubhouse isn't the best but wow others should take notice...they have everything you could want and some exceptional sales and Awesome selection. Staff was very informative and made sure you knew about all the offerings....Kudos

F&B was very good and the new pavilion bar is Great!! Views for miles and the girl were excellent.

Course was in amazing condition everything was mowed out nicely and bunkers were groomed. Greens were fast and true probably rolling close to 12....just wish golfers would fix their ball marks.

Pace of play was good for a busy Saturday and saw the ranger many times and he was very friendly. I have heard complaints about the rangers being pushy but they were professional a did a great job.

Kudos the the staff for a great day and experience....my group hopes to return many more times!!

Best course in the Pocono’s

Great layout utilizing the ski hill elevation. Despite lots of rain, the greens were in excellent condition and course not as wet as others in the area

sloping greens are fun, pretend you are at Augusta

The greens are difficult but fair. Holes have nice elevation and are lined with skinny trees.. I play it a few times a year and look forward to it.

A fine golf course.

After you get past the disaster that is a clubhouse it’s all good from there. The course is amazing. Great layout perfect condition excellent greens and a great setting. When your on any given hole you never see another hole. Complete isolation. It’s an experience. Pick the right tees. If you hit it long go backs bit because you’ll outdrive some of the doglegs. The place is one of the top courses around the poconos and well worth the drive to get to it. Don’t skip it to play a cheaper course. It’s worth the extra couple of bucks.

Interesting #toughgreens

Hit many different kinds of shots and need to place our approach on the correct tier on the greens or it's a potential 3 putt.

Great condition, nice 19th hole with nice value on beer

Fantastic course and a great value

Played a 2:00 round on Saturday July 22 with a couple buddies from Maryland, one of whom golfs a ton and used to caddy at Caves Valley in Maryland. We were all really impressed with the course, especially given that it's public and the rates are extremely reasonable. An added bonus is in the heat of the summer you can always count on it being 10 or so degrees cooler in the Poconos. Clearly one of the best in PA- definitely worth a trip!

Bucket List Course for sure

This course rivals any private country club that I've experienced. We researched all the courses in the area and there is nothing that can compare to Jack Frost. The staff is super friendly and accommodating and that's just the start. The course itself is one of the most visually stunning layouts I have ever played in my life. Every hole is set by itself so you often feel like you're the only group on the course. We didn't see much but it's clear there is wildlife abound. For those who find mountain golf quite difficult because of some tricked up bounces and such, you will not complain about that here. Everything is fair. If you hit good shots you get rewarded. If you hit it in the woods there's a slim chance you'll get lucky and find it but probably not.

Nice 4 hour round on a Friday Afternoon on July 4th weekend

Joined their $250/play as much as you want with a cart for $25 after 1pm membership. Great deal. Course was in great shape. Almost a "stadium course": really wide fairways but hilly so plenty of challenge while you shouldn't lose many balls off the tee. Fairways and greens in really nice shape. Just a couple of water holes. Green knowledge helps quite a bit as there are some big breaks. If you are used to a flat golf course, this will be quite a challenge. Other reviewers have complained about course ranger "aggressiveness" in keeping up pace of play. Thank you rangers! They list pace of play as 4.5 hours. I don't want to play a 5 hour round. Round today took 4:10. Really enjoyed it.

Ranger danger

The layout and conditions of this course are great. The staff is somewhat questionable though. Rangers are out on course and constantly writing your cart number down. I can appreciate them wanting to keep up pace of play, but when it is quite obvious that pace is being upheld there really is not any reason to stalk people around the course.

Thank you for the feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the course and hope you will return.

We do try and make sure pace is moving and our staff does right down times along the way. This is just the way we track our pace of play and I'm sorry you took offense to it.

Thanks again
